Summary: In short. Big hard drive nice features sony quality never let me down picture quality as good as other camera formats ( tape,dvd etc) easy to drag and drop files off the camera to edit or playback on your pc! I would reccomend the sony sports pack which goes with this camera, it allows you to use it underwater with AMAZING results.
Summary: We have had many problems with this cam. The videofiles are DVD-quality (25% of DV-quality) and cannot be edited on a mac. Video is striped all-over, so mainly unusable. Autofocus is working badly in lesser light and not working at all when zoomed. Startuptime is long. Docking station is hopeless solution: all connections through this, so: no long-term video on AC-power, no connection for power on the cam.
Excerpt: "...you want these then the Sony website is all you need, this review is about my own personal experiences with the camcorder. Telling you one or two things you might not have known! I have owned this camera for over 6 months now and used it in many situations. I hope to help you make a decision on if you want to buy it or not. I will write about a point, and then do a summery of what i was saying, just incase i ramble on a bit! First thing i will ...
Excerpt: "== Sony Handycam DCR SR72E == === Place of purchase=== Comet Electrical store, One Stop shopping Centre, Birmingham === my first camcorder=== First of all I brought the camcorder to take on holiday to Egypt, Ive never had a camcorder before so I was weary of how to use them, however I wanted one that was easy to use with loads of memory as I was going away for 2 weeks, I wanted it to be very compact and lightweight too. === Features=== *60GB ...
Pros: Light weight, Small (about the same size as a half pint glass), Editing software included
Cons: Cost, one of the most expensive camcorders on the market in its range
Summary: I'd been playing with the idea of getting a camcorder for quite some time so I did allot of research into what to look for and which brands offered what and so I settled on the Sony, it's the best all round and I've owned a wide variety of Sony stuff in my lifetime and they all are top build quality.
Summary: Ordered the camera on Sunday arrived at my home on Tuesday. Easy to order and good service from Amazon. Have taken some videos and photos and plyed them back on TV. They are good quality and setup is very easy. I'm having difficulties with viewing the videos on the computer, the photos are visible but the video clips dont seem to be playing on Microsoft media player. It probably something I'm doing wrong but if anyone can help, id appreciatr it.
Summary: Easy to use, compact, excellent image quality. My only problem is that i can't figure out how to get it to work on windows movie maker. I would recommend and amazon was cheapest when i bought it a few weeks ago.
Summary: This camcorder is so easy to use, we learned how to use it very quickly in less than an hour, and the quality of the videos is fantastic. I would agree that you need to buy the longer lasting battery if intending to take this camera on holiday-which is what we did and we never ran out of battery as long as both were charged every couple of days at the hotel.Well worth the money, and the spacious hard drive meant instant recording without worrying about discs/tapes or...
Summary: I'm very pleased with this camcorder, which I've now had for a couple of weeks. However, here are a couple of bits of feedback: 1) The manual is not very helpful when it comes to connecting to your computer and installing the software. The Handycam station should ideally be plugged into the mains, and the camera should click into position on the station otherwise the connection is not properly made.
